Chinese New Year Food Pork Stir Fry Recipe


 Our family loves stir fry and has tried many recipes and flavor combinations over the years. So much I need a new Wok. (we had a nonstick one and I will not do that again!)  No worries if you do not have a wok at home, I used a large saute’ pan for this recipe and it worked just fine.

I found a recipe for Chinatown Chicken Simmer in the coupon section of the Sunday newspaper several years ago and have been adapting the veggies and proteins over the years. Stir Fry Recipes make eating Chinese food at home so much cheaper and it is always well received by our family. We used pork tenderloin this evening, but chicken thighs, chicken breasts, tofu or flank steak all cook up super fast as well. 

How to make a wonderful Pork Stir Fry Recipe

Start by browning the meat on both sides in a little oil. Then remove to a platter while you cook up the veggies.

Use a combo of all your favorite stir fry veggies, we used red peppers, mushrooms, onions and snow peas.

Once you finish off the veggies, make a pan of Ling Ling Potstickers. They come with Ling Ling signature dipping sauce for a super easy side dish or appetizer.

Simply lay them in a non-stick pan filled with a little oil and water and cover and wait for them to heat through.
